ISO 27001 Consulting

Information Security’s Importance in 2021

 

In a modern age of conducting business, the majority of businesses across the world have digital assets that need protection against cyber-attacks and sensitive information being leaked or compromised by being made made public. Therefore, such businesses incorporate a wide selection of software-based programs and applications to manage their digital data and assets. These assets can include a customer database, store employee records, and legal documentation. Cyber-attacks have become more prevalent with the COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions. As a result, you must ensure that your company is protected. WWISE offers ISO 27001 consulting and training for your entire organisation to cover your digital assets and take care that your employees do not cause any information leaks.

 

Being Aware and Alert

 

Information Security would consistently struggle to keep up with the fast pace at which the internet is growing, expanding, and evolving. A simple example of this is how Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have evolved to the point where they can either scramble or change an IP address’s physical location. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that your business and employees have the utmost Information Security awareness when working with your digital assets. Our ISO 27001 Information Security consulting and training solutions will give you the means to ensure that every employee in your business is aware of any possible cyber-threats and how to avoid any data leaks. On top of that, WWISE can develop and implement an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to give your organisation the tools to comply with international best practices in the realm of Information Security for businesses. We can tailor an ISMS to suit the specific needs of your organisation, making use of the ISO 27001 standard as an adaptable framework. As a result, your business comply with the ISO 27001 standard, allowing you to become certified if you want to in the future.

 

Understanding the ISO 27001 Standard

 

ISO Standards are published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). This multi-national organisation consists of members from various standardisation organisations around the world to decide on internationally agreed-upon best practices and guidelines to serve as frameworks for various Management Systems that can be integrated to businesses for certification purposes. The ISO 27001 Standard focuses on Information Security to assist your business to protect itself from potential cyber-attacks and data leaks within your organisation.

 

Information is Power in 2021

 

If your business keeps a digital record of legal agreements, non-disclosure agreements, employee contracts, payroll information, or any personal details, your business has digital assets that are at risk of potential cyber-attacks and data leaks. Although intricate passwords might seem like a feasible solution, they can be duplicated if they are not frequently changed, leading to possible leaks. This comes down to the awareness of your employees as well, having to ensure that nobody has access to their account passwords. A wide variety of legal acts are in place to protect personal information leaks, such as the POPI act in South Africa. These can be enforced when a data leak occurs in your organisation. Having a professional ISO 27001 consulting agency on your side will work to the benefit of protecting your business and its digital assets.
